What’s New in Products & Services

January 2016, Vol. 243, No. 1

Barben Analytical Barben Analytical has added the BOS SAFETAP retractable optical oxygen sensor to its product offering. Retractable (hot-tap) sensors allow the measurement element to be inserted directly into the process pipeline or vessel without the need for a dedicated sample line. When removal is required, an integral ball valve isolates the sensor without shutting down the process. BOS SAFETAP is offered in all current measurement ranges from 0.5ppm to 25% oxygen (gas phase) or 1ppb to 22ppm (liquid phase).The oxygen measurement is also highly selective toward oxygen, thus not affected by H2S, CO2 or […]
